The Bay Area Asylum Mental Health Project at Research Institute Without Walls, in collaboration with the San Francisco Bar Association, and Well Clinic is offering training for licensed mental health clinicians who are interested in performing psychological evaluations of asylum seekers.
The Project’s training provides instruction on conducting evaluations, report writing, as well as legal information on the asylum process provided by immigration attorneys from our partner organizations.
After attending the training you will be provided a mentor who will work with you to develop your skills as an evaluator. Client evaluation interviews are typically 2 to 3 hours, done at your preferred time in your office, with the help of an interpreter as needed. Although fluency in languages other than English is beneficial, it is not necessary. After taking the training we ask that you provide at least two evaluations a year; and that your schedule will accommodate accepting a first evaluation by November 2021, and accept a second one by March 2022.
Trainings will be held on September 25th and October 2nd 9am -12:30pm. Participants must attend both sessions. CE credits are not available for this training.
